Classical Dance and Theatre in South-East Asia


This lavishly illustrated book provides an introduction to the rich traditions of Southeast Asian dance, theatre, and puppet theatre. The author focuses mainly on classical traditions that are still performed, and separate chapters look at Burma, Thailand, Java, and Bali. Miettinen also considers the disappearing traditions in Malaysia, Cambodia, and Laos, and discusses Chinese theater in Southeast Asia and Chinese-influenced theatre in Vietnam.
